Medical Records Assistant, Columbia, MD - January 1, 2018
Typical day was usually pretty quiet but occasionally things got hairy if a client had a meltdown. Clinic was a hot mess, I don't recommend working there. Medical records, enrollment, ACT, Supported Employment, residential and day program are all wonderful. Management is also excellent. Everyone is friends with everyone else and it was like a family. Very flexible with the hours, good for someone with kids. Unfortunately, people leave this place because of the horrendously low pay. It's a great place to start out and gain experience, but everyone eventually leaves to pursue more money. Also, no paid holidays or vacation days. You accrue PTO with every pay and you use that for everything: holidays, vacations, sick days, whatever. They are generous with the PTO and it adds up quick, but if you've used all your time and get sick, you either work sick or don't get paid.
